Convert image files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a PNG (Portable Network Graphics) file and from this, create a new image saved in the WEBP (WebP) format that you can then download and edit/use within image file editors or use for high definition printing applications.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your PNG to WEBP.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your PNG file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the PNG to WEBP conversion has completed, you can download your WEBP file straight away.
We aim to process all PNG to WEBP conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the PNG file you submit to us. The resulting WEBP file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our PNG to WEBP tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our PNG conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.
The PNG graphics file format is a commonly used format for storing 2D images which can be highly compressed by the use a palette if the image has a sufficiently low number of colors (256 colors in general). The PNG file is then further compressed using the DEFLATE compression algorithm to ensure small file sizes that are fast to download.
PNG files are seen as the logical successor to the GIF image file format and was devised in the mid-1990's as a superior format to GIF. PNG files are generally used for company logos, icons and other non-photographic image content. Saving a digital photo in the PNG format will create a much larger file than an equivalent JPG image hence the PNG format being unsuitable for most digital photo content.
The WebP format created to be a successor to the JPEG image file format features enhanced lossy compression resulting in smaller files to a comparable JPEG file. The format also supports lossless compression and animations making it possible to be used as an alternative to Animated GIF's.
The format has its limitations such as a maximum width of 16384 pixels. Support for displaying WebP images is well supported within most modern web browsers, with older browsers such as Internet Explorer requiring additional plugins to display the image content.
